will put out details, but the question is, what details? on his $5 trillion tax cut, paul ryan said just yesterday and got criticized by one of their own supporters, they didn't have time to go through the math to show how they're going to pay for it. well, tonight they'll have 90 minutes and they should go through that math. >> let's talk about the middle class for a moment. it's been called now a distraction. >> yes. >> the vice president, we played it a minute ago when i was interviewing dan lothian. >> i heard. >> you know what he said, the middle class being buried. and the republicans jumped on that. was that a big mistake on the part of the vice president? >> no. but you know what the republicans are really god at? they're really god at jumping on distractions, jumping on comments taken out of context. the vice president has been saying and has been saying on the trail for some time. the middle class because of the policies of the past were punished and right now the last thing we should do is go back to those same policies. unfortunately, that's what mitt romney and paul ryan are
-election for the president, if we postulate that hypothetical, then they say, well, the only problem was paul ryan should have been first on the ticket, should have been more conservative, and you know that argument. i think if it's a blowout and these are all ifs, you have a goldwater-type reassessment, then, yes, a, you have a desire to manufacture, and, b, you have new people in the party like a ted cruz that the president can go out and talk to and say let's be reasonable. you're a tea party guy, but let's do something that people like your parents can have a path to citizenship and -- >> that's a good idea. i'm for that. thank you, gentlemen. andrew sullivan, amazing piece. i will read it several times. >> thank you. >> ari melber, thank you. >>> up next, it took a wild ending to last night's packers/seahawks game to get wisconsin governor scott walker to finally side with union workers. that's next in the "sideshow." yeah, i'm looking to save, but i'm not sure which policy is right for me. you should try our coverage checker. it helps you see if you have too much coverage or not enough, making it e
on to clarify. but, ana, paul ryan wasted no time, seizing on those comments. good strategy? >> look, you know, i love joe biden. i don't know how every republican in america doesn't love joe biden. he is a great guy. he's fun. he is the gift that keeps on giving. i miss joe biden. we hadn't heard a gaffe from good old joe in about two or three weeks. it really had been a long time. this is what the campaigns are like today in 2012, unfortunately. we look for gaffes on each other and try to make them real big. i think when joe starts getting earnest, when he starts getting righteous and starts talking about god, watch out, because a zinger is coming out. >> speaking of zingers, the debate spoet supposedly is going to be all about zingers. i can see mitt romney taking that line. i would. maria? >> the problem with that, though, carol, is that if you know joe biden and what he has done in his career, he has actually been one of the strongest spokespersons for the middle class and for working americans. and if you look at what he said, if you look at it in context, he clearly is talking about how
before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
's how paul ryan responded. >> i thought he was taking my speech. you know what? we agreed these are being buried by obama care and spending regulations and all things plaguing a business. the way to stop this is to stop this. >> the middle class has been buried for four years. who is to blame? >> that little exchange we saw encapsulates the challenge for president barack obama tonight. he has to defend his record, he's got to take credit for the good things that have happened. i do think the country is headed in the right direction as i think most americans do, but i think he has to acknowledge how the experience is of real americans enough. not only on economic issues but he's not changing the tone in washington, which he's set out to do. i think the president also has to say what to do differently in the next four years. each of these men have to make a case of themselves and articulate the vision they have for the next four years otherwise they won't have a successful evening. >> there's trouble for biden in a new poll. a cnn/orc poll to put up for everyone. 60% of like
by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is tryin
paul ryan is a killer. according to a source, he ignores the sofact. american doctors for troops as president obama is rationing health care. >> president obama again throwing seniors off the cliff. >> another trusted source gave me this piece of of the mission. it is a reduction in future growth spending over 10 years, not a slashing of the current budget. that is what i put it together. the agenda product -- project, american data for truth, two anonymous groups, is it obama, is it ryan? not on your life. these dames were killed by deception. deception and a cliff. [laughter] >> this is what the participants saw, taken from the washington post fast tracker -- a fact checker. the final condition, the control commission, as participants who were exposed to a video, which asked the question, could we can be reelected today if the campaign techniques and communication channels were available back then. let's watch that. >> mr. lincoln, we have a question for you. why should we trust you as president? as a lawyer, you defended women -- you admitted adultery. a wife who poisoned her
candidate paul ryan is in new hampshire. this is not a live picture, but him at the event from this morning. despite the small size, new hampshire has become a key battle ground state. ryan was there just last week. the latest polls show the president ahead of mitt romney in nine battle ground states. mr. obama's biggest leads are in ohio, new hampshire, and iowa. of course, this could change in the weeks to come. the tightest races at this point are nevada and north carolina. the national average of those polled has president obama with a 49.5%, the potential vote 44% for romney. >>>in this weekend's presidential address president obama is calling on congress to help homeowners. >> last week mortgage rates were at historic lows. but instead of helping more and more hard working families take advantage of those rates. congress was away on break. instead of worrying about you they had already gone home to worry about their campaigns. >> the president says congress has yet to act on legislation he sent them in february that would save homeowners about $3000 a year on their mortgages. >>> the
for the contrast we're going to hear tomorrow. >> campaigning in iowa, running mate paul ryan asked about the confession that 47% who don't pay income taxes think government owes them. >> get them a job so they're good taxpayers. >> we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we added 50 million people to food stamp rolls in the last four years because there is no opportunity, no economic growth. >> in the debate, romney is sure to be asked what is now shorthanded as his 47% remarks. he previewed his explanation to denver fox affiliate. >> i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that is the real percent people care about. not 99% versus 1%. not 47%. i'm president for 100% of the people and demonstrated that throughout my life. >> within hours of the vice president remark in the state of the middle class in four years, ryan took him to task. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, "buried." we agree. they're being buried by regulations, buried by taxes. buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama adm
nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is part of a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired lieutenant colonel, and also, moody's chief economist on why wall street might not care who wins this election. america's security and the obama administration's handling of foreign affairs quickly becoming

in the one presidential debate with paul ryan. >> what do you think of this report that a lot of people think the polls of these two candidates are skewed towards obama, so it looks like all these polls show obama is in the lead and there's a report now saying a lot of those polls are underreporting and oversampling democrats. >> the allegation is there's oversampling of democrats. every poll is different, but there seems to be some real unanimity. i think people will be very surprised if barack obama who seems to be ahead by considerable amounts in swing states, especially ohio and florida which romney needs to win that people will be flabbergasted if it doesn't quite turn out that way. the general election poll in terms of the entire nation 39- 47 is almost tied, but in the state swing polls there seems to be a great difference. so there's a real discrepancy. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. the debate airs tomorrow at 9:00. you can watch it right here on fox 5. i'll have the wrap-up on the news at 10:00, the news edge at 11:00. >>> a major victory for democrats today. a judge block
. >> david, there's a debate emerging now on whether paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's effortso wi white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the y campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security
. and then the response from his challenger, the vice-presidential candidate, paul ryan. take a listen. >> all kidding aside, with all the boos, we can stop all the malarkey, this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul rya
, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan budget plan. by putting him on the ticket i think the republicans took a huge risk because they have to explain exactly what his budget would do to domestic program and future growth. and of course many people understand that the ryan plan it doesn't add up. the math is just not there. >> i looked, david, at the president's schedule today, president obama's schedule. he's here in washington, d.c. 9:45 he received a presidential daily brief, met with senior advisors at 10:15. 4:20, which now he's out there on the campaign trail. he's got an efbt at 4:20, 6:05, another campaign fund raising event, one at 8:25 tonight. but he had until 4:00 basically he was in the white house, as you know, benjamin netanyahu's been in new york all day. i
. the arithmetic just doesn't add up. paul ryan had the opportunity to speak to it this weekend and said he didn't have time to do that. so there are a lot of questions out there. we would love to know how he's going to pay for $5 trillion tax plan for millionaires and billionaires and not leave the burden on the middle class. >> barbara, let me ask that question specifically. is there a plan for how mitt romney will respond to that question? that, you know, the tax policy center, it's a nonpartisan group, people served in both democrat and republican administrations, has concluded -- and there do appear to be things that can change. but has concluded to have a revenue-neutral tax plan, you would have to raise some taxes on the middle class. is mitt romney going to get specific on that or say it doesn't have to be revenue-neutral, or how specific will he get? >> that's a totally discredited study. and we are cutting taxes on all people. in fact, it's barack obama's policies which actually we don't know what they are, and jen just didn't tell you. i mean, we have talked about key stone pipeline o
't afford to be buried for four more years. and the republican vp nominee, paul ryan, weighed in during a rally on this same topic late today in iowa. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need romney in denver, colorado. before we get to carl, we want to go to ed henry live with the president in las vegas tonight's. how is the prep going for the big deal tomorrow night? good evening. >> it's been hours of debate prep. it's been intense. they're being very tight lipped about what the president is doing to practice. but he tried to get out today from the resort he's staying at in henderson, nevada. he went to the hoover dam for the first time in his life. maybe get a fresh air or do thinking before tomorrow's first showdown face-to-face with mitt romney. interesting, you mentioned vice president biden was speaking for the president, kind of slipped up by suggesting the middle class has been buried the last four years. so he clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney
, will be paul ryan and joe biden. they will be better at it. romney is good in a group setting, not done a lot of one-on-one. john mccain wasn't the best debater either. he doesn't blow anybody away. >> i spoke with nate silver from the "new york times" who has looked at all the polls and how much ground mitt romney has to gain, as much as seven points, a lot to gain in some of the key battleground states through a debate performance when two guys can be very well prepared, one sitting president. >> kerry did it though against bush. >> i don't know that he made up all that ground. >> it's not the debate, what is it for mitt romney the last five and a half weeks of this campaign to change it? >> i think he does have to go big. he has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about medicare plan that paul ryan has put in place that is beginning to hurt them in the battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep co

appearances and attacks before the debate are being handed off to the number twos. paul ryan and joe biden hit the trial while their bosses brush up. >> and while this first debate is focused primarily on domestic issues, foreign policy is playing a much larger role out in the campaign trail. especially in the wake of the attack on the consulate in libya. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >>> and we're learning more about that attack on the american consulate last month. months earlier, a team of american special forces went in to asty in benghazi. they also reportedly trained local militias in protecting the consulate. while the state department then became responsible for security there, but never put in a request to the pentagon for more protection. this comes as the white house is rejecting calls for ambassador susan wright to resign for saying that the attacks were sparked by the offensive antes-muslim film. >>> it is 7:22. we will tell you why it is a little more pricey in the district for food. and why you have to pay. >>> and christmas is months away but it is shaping up to be a b
of questions for biden on the debate stage against paul ryan who is famous for his command of budget details. biden's best threat is simply to stick to the script. >> hard to stick to the script sometimes. thank you, bill plante. >>> donnie wahlberg toured with the new kids on the block this summer. hi, donnie. his latest stop is our green room. we'll ask him about reviving his boy band days and his new hit show, "bluebloods." you're watching cbs "this morning". did you take my truck out last night? 'tis tasty. >>> cats may have nine lives but we have a story of two dogs who may be the ultimate survivor. >> one of the dogs met up with a car on the east coast the other had trouble with a truck on the west coast. terrell brown reports it's incredible they are both alive. >> reporter: since the invention of the automobile the relationship between man and dog has been doomed. >> poor little guy. probably kept up with you for a mile or so. tough little mutt. >> reporter: the topic found its way to the campaign trail as one late night dog lover won't let the nominee forget. >> it's not like i put

debates, joe biden won. actual debates, harvard and yale coaches enjoy will be paul ryan and joe biden. they'll be better. romney is good in a group setting, hasn't done a lot of one on one. the president, john mccain wasn't the best debater either. >> i talked to nathan sproul, how much ground romney has to gain, could be as much as seven points, that's a lot to gain through a debate performance. two guys can be well prepared, one sitting president. >> he did against bush. >> it is not the debate, what is it for mitt romney in the last five weeks of the campaign to change it. >> i think he has to go big, has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about the medicare plan paul ryan put in place, it is beginning to hurt them in battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep coming back to. just had it again with the terrorist attack on the libyan embassy. things like that can change the elections very
opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you know i'm glad you brought that up, sir. [applause] >> now, there is a tax on social security benefits he's talking about. i voted consistently to repeal that tax because you know what you already paid for this. it's your benefit, you already paid tax on this money once before, number two, it's funny how joe biden and
. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress repeatedly opposed the obama administration's effort to use the taxpayer funds to do so, underscores the ad
in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been seen or heard before, then it has some shock value. there can be substantive and revealing comments in what people say when they think the spotlight is not on them. but in the case of this particular obama speech at hampton university in virginia in 2007, he delivered it in front of a bunch of reporters. cameras there. the surprise factor has been lost here. >> you covered the media. as we mentioned it right wing radio, right wing conservative television today, pointing at the -- it is the mainstream media, this is all the mainstream media, my question is, their ratings are high, they bring in the big bucks, aren't the
in washington, d.c. paul ryan calls them loophole lobbyists. he is right. they are wearing thousand-dollar suits and getting paid god knows what to protect these loopholes. you can make a case. it sound like you are making the case for the most important thing in the world in each one of these. but you have to believe there is going to be a big pay-off, and i happen to believe there is. senator fisher and i agree with the need to cut the corporate rate. but you are not going to do that unless you are doing the right thing for our country and cutting back in the other deductions. 0er wise all it does is increase the size of the deficit. >> thanks. we do need to simplify the tax code. it is 72,000 pages long, and there is by patterson support to do that. we need to lower the corporate tax rate. we are at 35%, the highest among our trading partners. i is suggested over a year ago to lower it to 24%. we need to repeal the death tax. here in nebraska we have done that. we need to see that happen at the federal level as well. we need to repeal the alternative minimum tax. that is a tax that was set up
it in eastern ohio, they are not going to vote for barack obama. neil: now the ryan and romney camp has been talking about how bad the president is going to be for a lot. this is for paul, i want you to react. >> this president cannot run on his record. this president can going to say anything and everything to try to blame to duck and to i did sport, and to de-- desport, defy, win by i di default, you w what, ohio, we're not going to let him. neil: when you hear president touting improving economy numbers, still weak as we know for this stage in a recovery, but they are better than they were, and president saying hey look i've been for pursuing coal and oil as much as green energy, someone is buying, that right? >> i hope not. because it is a absolute lie from the president. and anyone that supports him to say that he is eliminating low-cost electricity in america. it is a human issue to me because it is the lives and livelihoods of my employees he is destroying, people are not buying his lies. lies. >> how i is he stopping our industry from expanding and mining more coal, white house says
